2017 HR Derby {Entry Thread}

Postby Southpaw19 » Tue Feb 28, 2017 6:56 pm

This season, in order to try to grow the field of participants, I’m starting this thread with over a month to go until Opening Day!


The goal: Build a HR team to collect the most MLB ROUND-TRIPPERS!

Pick a roster of 12 hitters. The first 11 batters must include:

-- 1 batter from Group A
-- 2 batters from Group B
-- 3 batters from Group C
-- 5 batters from Group D

The 12th hitter is your Wild Card and can be any player not listed here. You don't have to pick a WC player on a 25-man roster, but you obviously risk not accruing HRs if your player is stashed in the minors.

Post your first 11 selections in this thread. The deadline for posting is 5:00:00 PM Central Time on Saturday, April 1 2017.
No entries will be accepted after the deadline.


You must PM your Wild Card selection to me! Do not post it with your entry. It WILL NOT COUNT unless it's PM'd to me by the deadline.

RULES

Throughout the season, you may make 4 adds/drops to your core roster of 11 players. The following rules apply to adds/drops:

» You must drop a player to add another player. A drop/add is one transaction.

» You must post your transaction in the HR Derby transaction thread. The transaction becomes effective at midnight Central Time the day you post it. You will accrue the dropped player's HRs in any game started by midnight Central Time that day. You will accrue the added player's HRs for any games starting after midnight Central Ttime the next day.

» No transactions between the deadline on April 1 and noon Central Time on April 8 and also after noon Central Time September 10.

» If you only post an add without a drop or there's any other problem deciphering your intent, the transaction isn't finalized until it's straightened out.

» You may make 2 transactions before the All-Star Game and 2 transactions after the All-Star Game. These transactions apply only to the core roster and not the WC player. It's use or lose it -- if you don't make 2 transactions before the All-Star Game, you still only get 2 transactions afterwards (no hold-over transactions).

» The player added must be drawn from the same group as the player dropped.

» No clones. You can't have the same player more than once.

» MLB rules for stats will be followed for any games postponed, suspended, etc.

» You can only change your WC player once and only at the All-Star break ... so choose carefully!

» I will be providing updates roughly once a week throughout the season. If you have any scoring questions, please post them in the discussion thread or PM me. Final decisions on scoring are up to me.

Winner

» Anyone can enter. The winner has to be a member in good standing (in other words, not banned) at the conclusion of the season.

» Tiebreaker goes to the person who posted their HR Derby team first.

» You can change your HR Derby team as often as you'd like before the deadline. Just EDIT your original post instead of posting a new team. If you enter two teams, only the first team will count as your entry.

Groups will be the first reply to this thread.

When Schwarber wins the WS with a big fat dong and uses his bat to club to death every player on the other team and half their fans, I expect every one of these talking heads to defend him. -yanrslatr

Haha had to rub my eyes like three times to make sure all three of those guys were C-class.

Also I didn't pick a single AL player on accident.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.
